       cargo-install - Build and install a Rust binary


       cargo install [OPTIONS] CRATE...
       cargo install [OPTIONS] --path PATH
       cargo install [OPTIONS] --git URL [CRATE...]
       cargo install [OPTIONS] --list


       This command manages Cargo’s local set of installed binary crates. Only packages which
       have executable [[bin]] or [[example]] targets can be installed, and all executables are
       installed into the installation root’s bin folder.

       The installation root is determined, in order of precedence:

       •   --root option

       •   CARGO_INSTALL_ROOT environment variable

       •   install.root Cargo config value

       •   CARGO_HOME environment variable

       •   $HOME/.cargo

       There are multiple sources from which a crate can be installed. The default location is but the --git, --path, and --registry flags can change this source. If the
       source contains more than one package (such as or a git repository with multiple
       crates) the CRATE argument is required to indicate which crate should be installed.

       Crates from can optionally specify the version they wish to install via the
       --version flags, and similarly packages from git repositories can optionally specify the
       branch, tag, or revision that should be installed. If a crate has multiple binaries, the
       --bin argument can selectively install only one of them, and if you’d rather install
       examples the --example argument can be used as well.

       If the package is already installed, Cargo will reinstall it if the installed version does
       not appear to be up-to-date. If any of the following values change, then Cargo will
       reinstall the package:

       •   The package version and source.

       •   The set of binary names installed.

       •   The chosen features.

       •   The release mode (--debug).

       •   The target (--target).

       Installing with --path will always build and install, unless there are conflicting
       binaries from another package. The --force flag may be used to force Cargo to always
       reinstall the package.

       If the source is or --git then by default the crate will be built in a temporary
       target directory. To avoid this, the target directory can be specified by setting the
       CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable to a relative path. In particular, this can be
       useful for caching build artifacts on continuous integration systems.

       By default, the Cargo.lock file that is included with the package will be ignored. This
       means that Cargo will recompute which versions of dependencies to use, possibly using
       newer versions that have been released since the package was published. The --locked flag
       can be used to force Cargo to use the packaged Cargo.lock file if it is available. This
       may be useful for ensuring reproducible builds, to use the exact same set of dependencies
       that were available when the package was published. It may also be useful if a newer
       version of a dependency is published that no longer builds on your system, or has other
       problems. The downside to using --locked is that you will not receive any fixes or updates
       to any dependency. Note that Cargo did not start publishing Cargo.lock files until version
       1.37, which means packages published with prior versions will not have a Cargo.lock file


   Install Options
       --vers VERSION, --version VERSION
           Specify a version to install. This may be a version requirement
           <>, like ~1.2, to
           have Cargo select the newest version from the given requirement. If the version does
           not have a requirement operator (such as ^ or ~), then it must be in the form
           MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, and will install exactly that version; it is not treated as a caret
           requirement like Cargo dependencies are.

       --git URL
           Git URL to install the specified crate from.

       --branch BRANCH
           Branch to use when installing from git.

       --tag TAG
           Tag to use when installing from git.

       --rev SHA
           Specific commit to use when installing from git.

       --path PATH
           Filesystem path to local crate to install.

           List all installed packages and their versions.

       -f, --force
           Force overwriting existing crates or binaries. This can be used if a package has
           installed a binary with the same name as another package. This is also useful if
           something has changed on the system that you want to rebuild with, such as a newer
           version of rustc.

           By default, Cargo keeps track of the installed packages with a metadata file stored in
           the installation root directory. This flag tells Cargo not to use or create that file.
           With this flag, Cargo will refuse to overwrite any existing files unless the --force
           flag is used. This also disables Cargo’s ability to protect against multiple
           concurrent invocations of Cargo installing at the same time.

       --bin NAME...
           Install only the specified binary.

           Install all binaries.

       --example NAME...
           Install only the specified example.

           Install all examples.

       --root DIR
           Directory to install packages into.

       --registry REGISTRY
           Name of the registry to use. Registry names are defined in Cargo config files
           <>. If not specified, the default
           registry is used, which is defined by the registry.default config key which defaults
           to crates-io.

       --index INDEX
           The URL of the registry index to use.

   Feature Selection
       The feature flags allow you to control the enabled features for the "current" package. The
       "current" package is the package in the current directory, or the one specified in
       --manifest-path. If running in the root of a virtual workspace, then the default features
       are selected for all workspace members, or all features if --all-features is specified.

       When no feature options are given, the default feature is activated for every selected

       --features FEATURES
           Space or comma separated list of features to activate. These features only apply to
           the current directory’s package. Features of direct dependencies may be enabled with
           <dep-name>/<feature-name> syntax. This flag may be specified multiple times, which
           enables all specified features.

           Activate all available features of all selected packages.

           Do not activate the default feature of the current directory’s package.

   Compilation Options
       --target TRIPLE
           Install for the given architecture. The default is the host architecture. The general
           format of the triple is <arch><sub>-<vendor>-<sys>-<abi>. Run rustc --print
           target-list for a list of supported targets.

           This may also be specified with the config value

           Note that specifying this flag makes Cargo run in a different mode where the target
           artifacts are placed in a separate directory. See the build cache
           <> documentation for more

       --target-dir DIRECTORY
           Directory for all generated artifacts and intermediate files. May also be specified
           with the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable, or the config value
           <>. Defaults to target in the
           root of the workspace.

           Build with the dev profile instead the release profile.

   Manifest Options
       --frozen, --locked
           Either of these flags requires that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date. If the lock
           file is missing, or it needs to be updated, Cargo will exit with an error. The
           --frozen flag also prevents Cargo from attempting to access the network to determine
           if it is out-of-date.

           These may be used in environments where you want to assert that the Cargo.lock file is
           up-to-date (such as a CI build) or want to avoid network access.

           Prevents Cargo from accessing the network for any reason. Without this flag, Cargo
           will stop with an error if it needs to access the network and the network is not
           available. With this flag, Cargo will attempt to proceed without the network if

           Beware that this may result in different dependency resolution than online mode. Cargo
           will restrict itself to crates that are downloaded locally, even if there might be a
           newer version as indicated in the local copy of the index. See the cargo-fetch(1)
           command to download dependencies before going offline.

           May also be specified with the net.offline config value

   Miscellaneous Options
       -j N, --jobs N
           Number of parallel jobs to run. May also be specified with the config value
           <>. Defaults to the number of

   Display Options
       -v, --verbose
           Use verbose output. May be specified twice for "very verbose" output which includes
           extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be
           specified with the term.verbose config value

       -q, --quiet
           No output printed to stdout.

       --color WHEN
           Control when colored output is used. Valid values:

           •   auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the

           •   always: Always display colors.

           •   never: Never display colors.

           May also be specified with the term.color config value

   Common Options
           If Cargo has been installed with rustup, and the first argument to cargo begins with
           +, it will be interpreted as a rustup toolchain name (such as +stable or +nightly).
           See the rustup documentation <> for more
           information about how toolchain overrides work.

       -h, --help
           Prints help information.

       -Z FLAG...
           Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.


       See the reference <>
       for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
